There are those who like to do some MX or enduro training in winter, and those who prefer snowboarding or skiing. Then there's Loris Baz, who's decided to combine the two worlds and train with an MX bike in the snow.
Two studded tyres and he's ready to take on the ice. "#backon2wheels good training after a few months away. I feel so good!" the Frenchman told his fans on Facebook.
The video images you see here (click on the image to start the video) are pretty spectacular and it's clear you need some real skills to do certain things on the ice. A useful training exercise for Baz while he waits to get back on a Ducati MotoGP bike at the end of the month in Malaysia, where both the temperature and the environment will be very different.
